Biorobots, Nonlinear Dynamics and Perception
In this contribution a survey on a novel approach to locomotion and perception in biologically inspired robots is presented. The basic electronic architecture for modeling and implementing nonlinear dynamics involved in motion and perceptual control of the robot is the Cellular nonlinear network paradigm. It is shown how this continuous time lattice of neural-like circuits can generate suitable and real-time dynamics for efficient control of multi-actuators moving machines, and also to create the basis for a perceptual control of their behaviors.
